We are clearing out my late grandads house and have found 2 of these guns.
They have no makers markings on them. All I know is they were used with the
(i believe) aluminum rods shown. I'd really appreciate any info on them pl
ease. The rods have MCP embossed on them.
I know it was used to spraying the metal as a cloud onto materials and leaving a coating. He used it to cover plaster models he'd made. I could take some pics of the end product if it helps people understand it better.

The OP mentioned that the rods were stamped MCP - could that be these peopl
They mention a tin/zinc and a tin/bismuth alloy with metal spraying applica

It does not seem to be the sort I was talking about which were
industrial things for spraying rust preventing metals on things like
bridges etc,yours may be for spraying very low melting point alloys for
some other purposes.
MCP make all sorts of alloys.
